If you like real local seafood this is the place. Selection is great, and prices are reasonable. Hard to find better!

I had already decided ahead of time that for my birthday this year, I was going to go all out. And I did. I ordered the Snow Crab Clusters AND the FRESHLY CAUGHT FROM THE GULF, Pecan Crusted Grouper. I also ordered a very aromatic wine that worked well with all that food. Funnily enough, my date ordered a great... More

If you want fancy....this is not for you. But...it's great FRESH seafood which is hard to find anymore in Destin. No foreign fish here. And you cannot beat sitting on the dock with a fantastic view of the Bay! Hometown folks and just plain good.

I had hear so much about Aj's since I had got to destin I had to check it out. It's located in the harbor and has a great view. Scenery is excellent and the food isn't too bad, nothing cheap. I quite enjoyed the oysters, I will definitely come back during the "season" which I hear Destin comes alive. There's... More

With all the restaurants in Destin I do not understand the fascination with this one. The food was mediocre and the service was lousy. I review restaurants etc on trip advisor a lot and give fives but this one was poor. My spouse ordered a meal with fries and they were frozen and lousy. Expected much more.

Ok, so you turn in at the old cooler on a potholed drive going to where and all those in your cars ask why you are going down this alley...then they see the packed parking area and some beat down place and all question again why. Then you stand in line take a seat on a picnic table and watch... More

This was probably our 10th time eating here and have never been disappointed. Whenever we eat here we don't even need menus, just the fresh catch board because they have the best seafood and cooks around.

If you have a boat take it over here, dock and go into the restaurant on the dock for a great experience. No boat? you can drive over. Sit on the deck taking on the Choctaw Bay and relax. This is what vacationing should be all about. The food is good, not extraordinary, but you are here for the experience... More
